  • Is edamame good or bad for you? Edamame has wonderful surprising health benefits. Here are a few: High in protein, don’t raise blood sugar, rich in vitamins and rich in minerals.
  • How do you eat edamame? So how exactly do you eat edamame? Great question! My number one rule is that you do NOT eat the pod! :) Basically you are going to bring the salted pod to your lips, then squeeze or bite the little beans into your mouth. Each edamame typically has 2-3 beans per pod.  The beans should easily pop out.
  • Why are edamame pods not edible? Edamame pods are not edible because they are young and green when they are picked so that the beans inside are soft but making the pod difficult to chew. So what happens if you eat the pod? Nothing, really. The pods are not toxic. They are just extremely tough to chew. You will need to chew a long time to be able to swallow. Then they should pass naturally through your digestive system. Just focus on the beans!
